Hi! This is my first post on TGMF.

I have had a Cobra M40B petrol mower for a number of years now and it is still in reasonable condition but I've had enough of breathing in the petrol fumes. I am now looking at getting a cordless electric mower.

Just before Christmas I acquired a Ryobi lawnmower fitted with a Suburu engine that is made in the PRC. The mower had been standing a while and on starting it I noticed it was hunting slightly so I decided to clean it in my sonic tank. Apart from the issue with the float bowl seal swelling so that it...
